Writer salutes John Long

Editor:

This Thursday an era ends in Baltimore. The Hometown Classic Market in Baltimore is closing its doors.

Owner John Long is moving on with his life in these very hard times for small businesses. It is very difficult for a small business to make it anymore. John made a run at it for 11 years because he wanted to fulfill a dream he had about owning his own meat market.

What I want to say to the citizens of Baltimore and the surrounding area is, if
John touched your life in any way like he
did mine because of his selfless giving to the
community and the school, please let him
know. Let him know how much he will be
missed. Let him know that he made a difference
in Baltimore and Fairfield County.
I am letting him know now. John, you
changed my life and I only worked for you
one day a week to earn a few extra dollars.
Thank you!

James Wilson
Baltimore
